How to make perfect petals in Appliqué.

How I make my flower petals in appliqué
  1. Trace your pattern  on to heat resistant template plastic.
  2. Cut out the template.
  3. Trace template onto the back of your fabric.
  4. Using a quilting weight thread or thicker thread, Use a running stitch starting on the bottom corner of your petal.
  5. Insert your finger in the center of the fabric and draw up your thread.
  6. Tie off thread with a couple of stitches .
  7. Spray starch then use hot iron wait till cools 
  8. Snip one thread and pull out template. Hit petal with iron once more and it’s ready to glue baste in place. 🌸

1st baby food!!!! The best book for natural purees

I loved this book so much when I had my baby... I created this post years ago but never published it.
I thought I would share that I made my baby his food and never bought store bought baby food. It is so easy to make your own baby food. All you need to do is peel, boil and jar.

The recipes in this book are so wonderful and easy... All natural.

This is how I freeze and stored my food. In containers and jars from local hardware store and 99c stores. I made rough paper labels taped it to the jars so I knew what it was. You could also date the jars. NOT fancy at all.

its so easy to boil your fruits and vegetables then drain the water then puree. I actually peeled the apple first then boiled.

This is the first real food Jonah had. Purreed peas. Peas have to be purreed a long time because they have a rough texture and are not as smooth as other vegetables.

He used to sit in this chair and lick the spoon later on but they recalled this chair. I was sad about that because I loved this chair.

Thanks for visiting.
